I have a panasonic DMC-LX5. I can't figure out how to get to

Customer Question

I have a panasonic DMC-LX5. I can't figure out how to get to the screen where I can see how much is left on a memory card. Thanks
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: DMC-LX5 is all I know, sorry. It's about 7 years old, I'm guessing
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Everything works fine. I've spent hours searching the manuals. The manual tells me how to do it, but I can't get to the screen. It says this:"In recording (after settings) then it shows the info. I've tried to do this for years now.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: how much is the cost of your help?
JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: Do I have to pay if it doesn't help?

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

In the manual, it shows you where on the screen that the information will be displayed (it is not an menu that you need to access)

If you start recording, it will show the number of recordable photos available on the right hand side of the screen. I am attaching an image -- On the image, #8 is the available recordable photos and #9 should be the memory card displaying.

Do you see those two items?
